Look Inside Burnet Road Neapolitan Pizza Destination Bufalina Due

New, 1 comment

Gaze at that pretty pizza oven.

Bufalina Due, the pizza expansion from owner Steven Dilley’s Bufalina, is set to make its Burnet Road debut on Saturday, January 16. Eater photographer Robert J. Lerma took a tour of the Neapolitan pizzeria. The larger space is similar to the original one on East Cesar Chavez: wooden seats, white walls, communal tables, bar stools, and a great view of the giant Stefano Ferrara oven that had to be brought inside with a crane.

Heading the kitchen will be executive chef Alexandra Manley, and the more traditional kitchen means the menu will include new items alongside those signature pies. Initial hours will be from 5 to 11 p.m., Wednesdays through Sundays. Dilley plans on expanding with lunch come spring, something that isn’t available at the first spot. Barley Swine will soon become a new neighbor this month, too.

In more exciting pizza news, Bufalina is hosting New York favorite Roberta’s for a four-day pop-up later this month, including a special Texas-inspired pie. Later this year, Dallas pizzeria Cane Rosso is all set to take over St. Philip’s abandoned ovens for an Austin location.
